Contract brewed by Marston for Interbrew UK.
Also known as "Draught Bass"
Brewed to 4.4% abv, Draught Bass is still brewed to an original recipe using only the finest ingredients and the experience of generations. It is brewed with two strains of yeast to produce a complex nutty, malty taste with subtle hop undertones, which has widespread appeal to repertoire drinkers.

Cask at Cask and Barrel, Edinburgh. Amber colour. Sweaty aroma of boiled vegetables. Sweet and fruity, medium bodied. With it’s mushy mouthfeel, the stale boiled vegetables and it’s lacklustre overall character it does nothing to convince of seeking it out again.

On tap at Old Chicago. Pours a nice lighter amber. Has a very pleasant, sweet aroma. The taste was sweet, made me think of apples and honey. A bit too sweet for me and made it a little difficult to finish the pint. Would have been better if the sweetness was toned down a little, or maybe balanced out by some bisquity malt. Not a bad brew, just not for me.

The Chequers Inn, Bulkington. Have resisted rating this for a while because off-form it’s like drinking squash.... milky pint, resolving into a Tizerish orange amber. Oak, apple peel, Burton snatch in the nose. Mild-mannered apple fruitiness with a leafy hop finish, and a touch of liquorice earthiness as it warms. Delicately subtle, temperamental English sessions.

[CASK: The Bank, Manchester 04/04/07] Mediocre and not very tasty. About as reasonable as they come.

Svesse (7850) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2007
(Cask at The Tin Goose, Heathrow Airport, London 29 Apr) Copper colour with creamy white head. Fruity nose with apricots and stifled notes of dusty hops. Fruity taste with notes of apricots and traces of dusty hops in a rather unchallenging finish. Nothing wrong with it, just lacking character.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 4, 2007
Cask. Pulls a copperish colour with a thin creamy head, laces well. Nose is quite hoppy with some biscuity malt. Mouth much the same, some bitterness from the start, some winter fruit, plum, and some citrus as it develops. Quite quenching, but a little heavy after a few.

Pours light copper with a minimal head. Aroma is herbal and hoppy. Taste is fruity and toffee with a dry bitter finish. Very drinkable and light.

Cask at The Mudlark, Southwark. Really light aroma. Maybe it’s malt. What can you say? Well balanced hop and malt, but not truly inspirational. Always an acceptable drink, but new brews tend to be more complex and interesting. Pity.
